Holkham National Nature Reserve

A walk after presents but before dinner at Holkham National Nature Reserve. A few photos and the full photo set here.

Holkham NNR 10The sun beginning to set over the marshes

Holkham NNR 2The grasslands harbour thousands of pink – footed geese

Holkham NNR 5The wet grasslands attract lots of wigeon

Holkham NNR 6There are some little pools and ponds – don’t often get this close to a little grebe.

Holkham NNR 21And then down onto the huge beach in front of the dunes

Holkham NNR 18Amazingly we found this queen red-tailed bumblebee – still alive but only just – a first for me on Christmas Day!
